I help clients develop and realize their optimal health visions through inquiry, personal discovery, and accountability. As an expert in behavior change, I'm like a personal trainer for your whole self- body, mind, and spirit.
I provide a warm, welcoming environment where clients feel safe to explore what role maladaptive health behaviors play in their lives and what obstacles are in the way of change. This is a judgment-free zone. My dual background in public health and integrative health allows me to both provide education about the diseases or conditions clients are experiencing and also facilitate the behavior change process. In addition, I have a diverse network of traditional and holistic practitioners that I can refer clients to as appropriate to further support the behavior change process.
I love reading, cooking, being active, and relaxing with my two boys- my husband and dog that is! People say they come to me when they need to hear the truth in the nicest possible way. My own health journey has been a work in progress, as I believe everyone's is. My history of "high functioning" depression, anxiety, and an eating disorder has been challenging beyond belief, but I do believe I am "strong in the broken places."
Some of my favorites:
